Famitsu reveals the total sales figures of Xbox in Japan in the last 20 years
Famitsu is celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Xbox's launch in Japan, and at its week's week famitsu number, the total sales figures of the console have been published in Japan since the first time it arrived at the Japanese country. The figures do not include, still, definitive numbers related to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, but they give us a fairly particular perspective on Japan's relationship with the Microsoft console, a section in which we rarely obtain total figures.
In total, the first Xbox sold 472,992 units in Japan; The Xbox 360 registers the highest figure, with 1,616,128 units, and the Xbox One the lowest moment of the brand in Japan, with some 114,831 units in total sold in the useful life of the console. At the moment, Xbox Series X and S have sold 142,024 units in Japan, but it must be borne in mind that these consoles have not yet finished their cycle, and that its launch has been plagued by supply problems.
Even so, it is striking that the new generation of Xbox has already overcome the total sales of Xbox One in Japan.
They also provide us with some figures regarding titles. The best-selling game of the history of Xbox in Japan is Dead or Alive 3 (Xbox), with 271,149 copies, followed by Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope (Xbox 360), with 208,521 copies, and Tales of Vesperia (Xbox 360), who sold 204,305 copies.
